Since we’re finding out the sex of Baby #3 (in a couple of weeks!), we haven’t really started discussing names. Well, maybe once every week or so, I’ll toss a name out to Jeff to see what he thinks, but there isn’t anything serious.
Baby #1: With Phinehas, we had a boy name and a girl name picked out before our anatomy scan. Jeff really liked that name – mostly because of the story in the Bible about Phinehas. I didn’t have any objections, so that became our name. (I can’t even remember what our girl name was.)
Baby #2: We never did have a girl name. Well, I did (Kathryn Grace), but Jeff wasn’t on board with it. It didn’t matter as we had a boy. Since my new date was my deceased father’s birthday, Stephen became a great choice. Add in a middle name as Jeff’s dad’s name and we were complete!
Baby #3: We know that it will be a name from the Bible. That’s the “theme” that Jeff has always wanted. And although I would tend to more modern names, there are plenty of Biblical names to choose from. Except for girls! Girl names are hard and since we already have nieces named Sarah and Anna, that throws out 2 of the most common names. So, there isn’t a list yet, but this could be hard work if nothing “speaks” to both of us!
